Can I use an appliance coffee grinder?
I’m often asked this when people make the step from an appliance coffee machine to an Italian coffee machine and buying a new coffee machine and coffee grinder at the same time is going to blow the budget.
The good news is that most find they can keep using their old appliance coffee grinder. The bad news is that this is a temporary solution as most appliance coffee grinders cannot give the grind particle size consistency or control needed to get the most out of a manual coffee machine. So if you do keep your appliance grinder expect to be back for a professional coffee grinder in the not too distant future.
